This excursion was excellent. The boat tour was very nice to do. It gave us another perspective to the city. The bus tour was also nice to do and took us at the different places we wanted to visit. We highly recommend this tour.

Enjoyable visit . Some buses were not in good shape emitting fumes if you sat in back of bus. Boat ride informative
Reviewer: Ken Elrod
The boat and bus tour will give you a great overview of this beautiful city. The full loop on the bus takes a little over an hour. The boat tour was an unexpected highlight with great views of the many islands of the Helsinki Archipeligo. Highly recommended.
it was wonderfull time

The on//off Bus is the way to go. Ear Buds are great. The boat tour was a high lite
Reviewer: Marsha Kearney
Once we got to the right Bus (more then one Red Bus) we took advantage of the opportunity to stop where we wanted. Boat cruise was most delightful - going down small canals and seeing the wild lands.
Reviewer: Wolfgang Greinke
The combination of hop-on hop-off bus and boat tour was a nice rounded visit to Helsinki. The boat trip was especially nice since it made a long tour around the islands. This was one of the better bus/boat tours taken during our trip and we would highly recommend it.

It rained all morning and afternoon. Boat of the harbor and island was very good. The bus didn't give us much information auto where to be picked up again. Had to waited a very long time to be picked up after the tour harbor.

Efficient bus and boat system. Enjoyed the boat tour in particular - better views of some attractions. Good audio guide.
Reviewer: Mike and Janice Craig
The tour description is accurate. The boat tour is one time only and not like the bus. The tour was very relaxing and started at an outdoor market (good lunch). The recorded narration was quite informative. The bus came near most of the major sights. We ran out of time however to see it all. If pressed for time nix the boat trip as it takes quite a bit of time. My wife and I highly recommend.

This was a hop on hop off bus tour of Helinski and a was combo tour of the surrounding islands by boat ( not hop on hop off ). Helinski is a very quaint, very friendly town and we thoroughly enjoyed both the bus and the boat. We were on a cruise and only in Helinski for the day but had plenty of time for both and felt we got a great overview of the whole area!
We enjoyed it immensely. We took the boat tour and the guide was thorough and informative. the hop on hop off green bus had very nice staff. It was easy to get on and off and catch the next bus. Ideal way to see Helsinki

Canal cruise and hop on/hop off bus were great. Took the first cruise of the day; then later, took the bus and saw everything we wanted. Helsinki was one of our favorite ports. Later, we stopped for drinks and wi fi, then hopped back on the bus that eventually got us back to the port. Highly recommend.

We greatly enjoyed the Helsinki Boat and Bus tour in Helsinki. We just wish we had had more time to spend in the city. We especially enjoyed the fact that there was a pre-recorded narration in various languages on the bus. The narrator had a great voice, spoke at a pace that made it understandable, and covered the right amount of information. We were very pleased that music from Finnish composers was the background music behind the narration. It added to the historical information presented. We especially enjoyed the option to get off and see an area more thoroughly. A minor suggestion: it would have been valuable to have a brief announcement at the major ""hop-off"" points as to where toilets could be located. Again, thank you for a well organized tour.
The bus stop was right at the cruise pier, on time, access points to the city highlights were close. The boat tour was good to see the city from a water perspective but if your strapped for time - only do one!
Reviewer: Nancy Rush
The price was good for the service. The bus was a good view of the city with headphones explaining each stop. We did the boat first and spent the rest of the time off and on the bus.
Well done. Had adequate time to see The Rock Church, and get good viewing of most important sites. The boat tour was relaxing, and a pleasant way to spend some time. In retrospect, might have used the time better to just walk around Helsinki, but boat circuit did give an added dimension.
Reviewer: Susan Huber
Great tour - saw all the highlights of the city.
The bus portion was good with good narrative, the boat tour was too long

Reviewer: Gilles Champagne
The bus was easy to find, the stops were convenient, the staff were great at communicating what time the appropriate bus would leave to bring us back to the Cruise Ship Center, etc. The tour was well organized, and the crossover to and from the boat tour was easy. Glad we did it this way!
Reviewer: Terrance Brimer
Great overview of Helsinki. Good tour for seeing the sights in a limited time frame.
It was a national holiday the day that we were there and it rained for the latter part of the day but the bus tour was very good because of an outstanding driver. He was from England I think. And the boat tour was fantastic. We went out into the bay/fjord/not sure what it was called and saw summer homes and went under bridges. It was very picturesque. We even had bar service. Yahoo.
Boat ride was great. Hop on hop off worked out great. No problems.. Buses on time.
Highly suggested by others who had taken boat trip. So glad we did. Great, unique way to see the beauty of Helsinki without the crowds!
The bus was in walking distance of the ship. The staff accept our voucher with no problem in exchange for a ticket. A good value for the money as it included a boat tour. Th e boat tour was easy to find right downtown at the market square.

Helsinki has alot of water. The boat tour was a great way to see alot of the city. The bus tour was OK. City is beautiful. We got off at the marina and had alot of fun at the marketplace.

Helsinki has alot of water. The combo bus and boat tour was a great way to see the city. We enjoyed getting off at the marina and shopping at the marketplace. Lots of great booths. The combined water and bus experience gave us a great view of Helsinki!
It was very nice to just sit and view the harbor.
